Artist: Katatonia
Album: City Burials
Year: 2020

Lyrics:
My voice channeling
A circuit’s end
The house we lived in
Stricken with blight
Finding ways to kill the pain
Let the river run wild
Dreams shattering
Aerial sound

Scrape the lacquer
Can’t you see, it’s all tarnished

Tried the poise
To radiate
Tried my words
To illustrate
Finding ways to end the pain
I let the river run wild
Dreams shattering
Fixing to die

Scrape the lacquer
Can’t you see, it’s all tarnished

The levee breaking
I can’t live to fight once more
The levee breaking
I can’t live to fight once more

The road to the grave is straight as an arrow
I’m just staying around to sing your song, baby
The road to the grave is straight as an arrow
I’m just staying around to sing your song, baby

My voice travelling
Soaring bird above your head
The house we lived in
Ridden with disease

Scrape the lacquer
Can’t you see, it’s all tarnished

The levee breaking
I can’t live to fight once more
The levee breaking
I can’t live to fight once more

The road to the grave is straight as an arrow
I’m just staying around to sing your song, baby
The road to the grave is straight as an arrow
I’m just staying around to sing your song, baby
